The inquest at Manchester coroners court heard Uma, a pupil at Parrs Wood High in Didsbury, was being bullied at school and kept a secret diary, which was only discovered after her death.

In the months after his death, she researched suicide methods online.

In November 2018 Uma’s family began to notice a change in her mood, saying she was often ‘low and withdrawn’.

On December 21, that year, following a party at a friend’s house, she was taken to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital by police after being found in the street banging her head against the floor saying she ‘wanted to die’.

During the psychiatric assessment, she revealed she was being bullied at school by a girl who had ‘threatened to stab her’.

Paul Heron, head of learning at Parrs Wood, said the school had been aware of the bullying and had taken several steps to tackle it, including the exclusion of the bully.
